The shark tooth necklace has long been espoused as a symbol of male strength, potency and a proud display of masculinity. Such necklaces first came to prominence during the 1970’s, a time often remembered for brave and often unsuccessful fashion choices. I’m thinking someone along the lines of Tom Selleck would have been a wearer of the shark tooth necklace back in the day, in all his hairy-chested, full mustache glory. Aside from the appeal that shark tooth necklaces have always held in surfer culture, the shark tooth necklace is currently enjoying a resurgence amongst men. Often such situations can be viewed as being a case of for better or for worse, but in this case the rise in popularity of the shark tooth necklace is most definitely for the worst.
Apparently these necklaces hold a special allure for some men, thinking that they hold an irresistible attraction for women near and far. While it may come as surprising news to those who regularly wear these necklaces, they more often than not have a tendency to repel rather than attract potential partners.
Perhaps these men think shark tooth necklaces offer a natural charm, with a ‘man of the wild’, ‘conqueror of the ocean’ appeal, but they most certainly do not. Rather than these necklaces demonstrating the masculine strength of the wearer, they are often interpreted as being worn to make up for a shortfall of masculinity in some other area.
When worn out in public in an effort to maximise your romantic potential, you may notice the crowd part before you. This is not to be interpreted as people moving out of your way in awe of your power and beauty. Rather than people responding to your magnetism, they are in reality just trying to avoid you and your questionable taste in jewellery.
You may have heard tales or witnessed those wearing shark tooth necklaces having great success with attracting attention from many potential partners. Please don’t interpret this as meaning that it is the shark tooth necklace doing the attracting, there may be other factors in play. The wearer in these cases may win over partners despite the repellent qualities of the necklace itself. Check whether the subject in question is attractive, well dressed, personable, charming and confident. If so, you can almost guarantee that their potential romantic engagements are looking beyond the negative effects of the shark tooth necklace. Just imagine what success this person would enjoy in their romantic endeavours if they decided to hang up the necklace for good.
Even if a person was responsible for chasing a shark down and removing one of its teeth, there is no benefit to be gained from turning this tooth into a necklace pendant. What will garner you much more romantic attention is to show oceanic animals the respect they deserve and not take dentistry into your own hands.
As sad as it may be for some to admit, there is only one place where a shark tooth belongs, and that is in the ocean, in the mouth of a shark.
